Our Novices Introduce Themselves

Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary

We are an international course

from six different countries:
Australia, Brazil, Chile, Germany, Austria,
and Vietnam.

Although some of us had a lengthy wait that we readily accepted we arrived in Germany at various times during the previous year.

We are very lively, each of us is an original, each has her individual history with Schoenstatt. Reflecting on our personal journeys and in view of the different challenges that we are experiencing, including the coronavirus pandemic, we are aware that it is a great wonder we are a course.

Divine providence brought us together


We experienced it as a great gift that our postulancy was in Koblenz-Metternich, Germany in such close proximity to the place of origin of Schoenstatt and that we could experience the place from where Sister M. Emilie is especially active. It was possible for us regularly to learn more about Schoenstatt at the historic place of Schoenstatt’s origin and to walk in the footsteps of Father Kentenich and the founding generation.

Meanwhile our novitiate has begun in Schoenstatt, Germany and with great joy and longing we are approaching the day of our investiture – our clothing as Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary – on November 21, 2021.

You are cordially invited to join us

in celebration and joy for our investiture!
